numbervar dys;
numbervar yrs;
days :=DateDiff ('d', date_of_birth,currentdate );
yrs := int(dys/365);
dys := dys - yrs * 365;
Age will be  'yrs' years  and 'dys' days. 
 
If you want age as decimal years just use yrs := dys/365

another approach is to use the datediff and datepart together to avoid leap year issues...
 
datediff('yyyy',{table.DOB},currentdate)-(if datepart('y',currentdate)>datepart('y',{table.DOB}) then 0 else 1)

DBlank - this is so helpful - I copied and pasted it right into my formula editor (changing table.field).  How do I get age in months? (babies)

this could work if the kids are under 1
(currentdate - {MEMB_COMPANY_V.BIRTH})/365*12

kostya - I'll give that a try.  It looks like how I write formulas in Excel. 
 
DBlank - I am only looking at kids under 2 so I want to see:
--3 months old rather than 0 years old
--19 months old rather than 1 year old

this does not look to see the days of the month but it would be sometning like this
 
if
//months
(datediff('yyyy',{@dob},currentdate)-(if datepart('y',currentdate)>datepart('y',{@dob}) then 0 else 1))<2 then
totext(datediff('m',{@dob},currentdate),0,'') & ' months'
else
//years
totext((datediff('yyyy',{@dob},currentdate)-(if datepart('y',currentdate)>datepart('y',{@dob}) then 0 else 1)),0,'') & ' years'

It's actually more accurate if you divide by 365.25 due to leap years.
Thanks,
